The best digital sex toys you can buy are the ones that can be used in digital sex, but they also come with the potential to be used to produce orgasmic vibrations.
A new study by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) shows that the vast majority of digital sex items on sale in the United States are made from materials that can cause problems.
The CPSC study, which looked at 5.3 million online sexual content stores and 3.6 million retail sex product retailers, found that nearly 80% of digital products that were reviewed in the study were made from silicone, which is used in sex toys that were made by either the companies selling them or by a third party.
“This means that nearly one-third of the sexual content on Amazon and other online sex toy shops has silicone in it,” said CPSC investigator Lisa Smith.
“Silicone is the material that most often gets a lot of attention, but it’s also the material most often used to make vibrators, sex toys, and other sex toys.”
When the CPSC analyzed online sexual products, the agency found that about half of the devices tested contained silicone, including the vast bulk of the products in Amazon.
The agency’s analysis also found that almost a third of the sex toys were made of materials that could cause problems for users.
“It’s clear that silicone is not safe to use in sex,” said Smith.
“Sex toys and sexual content products should be used with care and caution,” she said.
The study was conducted in partnership with the Electronic Frontier Foundation and found that the majority of the silicone products tested contained small amounts of chemicals known as benzyl alcohols, a common chemical found in some household cleaners and detergents.
The chemicals are used in cleaning products and in other chemicals used in home appliances and other products to keep them clean.
The companies that sell sex toys have been trying to address concerns about the chemicals used to manufacture the silicone.
A company that manufactures sex toys called Lelo was fined $6.6m in 2017 for using benzyl, but the CPSM found that Lelo’s use of benzyls in their silicone was actually “more common” than what was reported.
“Benzyl is used to remove paint and sealants from surfaces, and is used as a paint thinner and sealant in products such as hair dryers and dryers,” said Emily Smith, Director of Research and Policy at the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC), which conducted the research.
“When it comes to silicone, the problem is that it’s used in so many different things.”
She added that consumers are buying more sex toys and sex toys are also more common on the internet.
“If people are buying sex toys online, it’s likely that they’re not looking to buy an item that is made with the exact same chemical,” Smith said.
“The only way that they can tell is if it’s silicone.”
In order to make sure that users are getting the products that they are paying for, the CPSCs new report recommends consumers check product labels and make sure the manufacturer’s instructions and warnings about using the product accurately.
“People should also avoid purchasing products from retailers that do not meet the manufacturer specifications for silicone,” said Mary Lou DeAngelis, the Director of Policy and Government Affairs at EPIC.
“They may be made from other substances or may have additives that are not disclosed to the consumer.”
Some manufacturers are doing better at protecting consumers from the dangers of silicone.
For example, Lelo has announced a plan to replace benzyl in all silicone products.
Lelo is a subsidiary of Newegg, which has long been one of the largest online sex retailers.
Newegg has announced that it will be removing benzyl from all of its silicone sex toys by the end of 2019.
The company has also announced that all of the lube in its new silicone sex toy products will be made with vegetable oil.
